You know, you know…

Okay. I’m not a fan of those ‘you know you’re a triathlete when…’ memes. Or ‘you know you’re a runner’. Or a cyclist. In fact, I’m sure there’s a ‘you know you’re a nuclear physicist when…’

Hang on. Right… I did just Google that possible meme and couldn’t find one. Bizarre. I thought the internet was just full of every possible combination of madness. But perhaps not.

Anyway, here’s a science joke to paper over that particular crack:

Two atoms were walking across a road when one of them said, “I think I lost an electron!” “Really!” the other replied, “Are you sure?” “Yes, I’m absolutely positive.”

And if you are a nuclear physicist and feel aggrieved, start your own meme. Here’s an idea: You know you’re a nuclear physicist when you push your shopping trolley into the empty bay rather than the two half-full ones each side, in order not to mess with Hund’s Rule of Maximum Multiplicity. And if you don’t like that, do your own gags.

So, as I was saying.

I realised yesterday I was a triathlete when I bent down to buckle my cycling shoes and pool water from the morning’s 2k swim piddled out on the floor from my nose.
